You really need to start with van, husky or imp sport ones first to do the job right. then seam weld them and if you have put the strengthening plate behind the rear cross member[ i. e the one the rear arms bolt too]. which is 1/8 thick you need to move the shocker pickups back too, best to remove the old one the make new ones out of heavier metal then fully weld them, Imp022 Imp022
